Now it is my favourite pedal and I don't think I'd be happy without it
You might like this, its kind of a mix of fuzz and distortion and can even be used as an overdrive on lower gain settings-great pedal
And of course, how can you not like the Big Muff?

Just curious, exactly what year was it that stomp boxes became referred to as pedals? There is no pedal on a stomp box yet they're called pedals. They're even put in pedal boards that often don't have a pedal(wah wah, volume, etc.) in them.
Actually, I believe they were known as pedals for a long time before the term stomp boxes was born.
This is a Trostsky overdrive with a couple minor mods, stacked with a GuitarPCB Stage 3 booster.
So why different? If you're familiar with the Trostky, it's a modified Electra boost circuit using an old Soviet silicon transistor and germanium clipping diodes. Long story short, it's kinda fuzzy. I increased the input signal and decreased the clipping threshold at the diode stage, and voila' FUZZ! What a gloriously articulate and sparkly fuzz, though. It's like a nice OD and a Si fuzzface running in parallel. hit the boost, and SOLO! It's a nice combination, and a relatively simple build, once you get past wiring two circuits in one medium-sized box...
